Girl about the Globe is a website designed to make solo travel for women accessible, fun and safe. It celebrates the increase in women travelling alone and those seeking more meaningful experiences to gain a better understanding of the world.
Founded by Lisa Imogen Eldridge, a travel journalist and self-confessed travel addict. Her background in the travel industry fuelled her passion to see the world and since the age of 21 she has travelled extensively as a solo traveller, living and working in numerous countries.
Over the last seventeen years she’s reached her goal of visiting 100 countries and over 60 of these solo. Lisa’s mission is to get as many women on the road as possible and to show that solo travel really isn’t that scary.
You can use Girl about the Globe for pre-planning your trip, for tips and inspiration when you’re abroad or for something that little bit different. They have everything you ever need to know about solo travel for women covered in their online guide – you can even download a free ebook.
See how easy a country is to travel around and discover a new destination or the best places for ancient history to trekking. Experience the thrill of tornado chasing or a culinary tour in the Alps. Sleep in a wigwam, a tropical treehouse or an underground mine. Find the best eco properties abroad to help you do your bit for sustainable travel and show you who’s making a difference to local communities all over the world.
Read how tourism is affecting local communities abroad and how you can help, or just follow the blog for the globetrotting adventures of a thirty-something solo.
If it’s travelling company that you need, then check out their recommended group tours for countries a little more challenging. Whatever your interest, they will help you to travel smarter, independently and more ethically.
From staying somewhere unusual, to cultural experiences and responsible travel tours, Girl about the Globe is a beacon to a sustainable path. We’ll help you get the most out of your experience and hopefully change the way that you travel, one footprint at a time…”
